Subject: new members
In days of old I would periodically publish on Humanist the biographies of
new members so as to introduce them to everyone else and promote collegial
exchange. I have been meaning to take up the practice again, but
surprisingly I have had much less time to spare than I did all those years
ago. Thanks now to Gregory Murphy of CETH, I have an automatic means of
collecting and formatting the information from the biographies, and so I
propose once again to publish biographies. As an initial trial, I include
below the two latest.
Please let me know what you think of my proposal to make the publication of
biographies a regular feature. Note that I edit them somewhat, removing the
snail-mail address but retaining the electronic one. I would appreciate any

I majored in French literature at Kansai Univ. in Japan. I have taught English
at high schools for more than 20 years in Japan. I have formed my own corpus
with 15 million words and made a reseach how often some English expressions
taught in high schools in Japan are really used. I am looking forward to
exchanging information in this forum.
